League leaders Stretton Eagles took a giant step towards securing the Staffordshire County Senior League Premier Division title with a 3-1 victory over Goldenhill Wanderers. In front of a sizable gathering of fellow football travellers, Stretton missed a host of chances before taking the lead in the 35th minute from the penalty spot. They scored a second four minutes after the restart through Goldenhill pulled a goal back in the 72nd minute. The points should have been secured long before Brent Upton restored Stretton’s two-goal advantage late in the game. Unusually for a non-league side outside the Blue Square Premier, Stretton used squad numbers so took the field with players wearing 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 14, 15, 19 and 30!
